I'm wrapping myself in a thermal blanket. The kind firefighters use when they are trapped by the flames....

Pigpen.

May the pummelation commence!

P.S. - I love the Pig. But, his overall contribution to the long history of this band has been overstated. His rank among GD players and writers is actually somewhere between Barlow and Vince.

1. Garcia
2. Weir
3. Lesh
4. Hunter
5. Barlow
6. Drummers
7. Pig
8. Keith
9. Brent
10.Donna
11.Bruce
12.Vince

I can only argue that Bob Weir has done more for the sound than Pig. Otherwise, well, ok.

Barlow is a pimple on bobs ass...

There would never have been a Grateful Dead if it were not for Pig!

You asked for it...

Ratings based on overall impact on the entire history of the band. Seriously, any arguments?

It's kind of brutal for Pig, I know. In many ways he IS GD. But, when you start to pull-back and take song-writing and longevity into account....it is what it is. I believe.

Cliff didnt intend to sound so confrontational, Southern Comfort on an icy night!

Cliffs world of Grateful Dead, truly does not include anything post 1977

Cliff is streaming Will Tells favorite show from `1969...

I love you too, CLIFF. I love your PICKS more though. It's what you DO, that really gets me going!

Bob: Hey guy's, I've got some new songs.
Phil: These are great, who wrote 'em?
Bob: Well...I had this mean pimple on my ass, and just as I was sqeezin' I heard..."wait, I write songs!".

The rest, as they say, is history.

High Flow, don't forget about T.C. on your list of players

He is not over-rated.

I liked him on those early Dark Stars.
